Recommended Extracurricular Activities

Consider planning out your extra-curricular activities by semester, just like your pre-requisite courses. Starting early helps avoid the stress associated with cramming everything into the last few semesters prior to the application.

Minimum Recommended Extra-curricular Activities

  • OT Experience: 50-75 hours in at least 2 different settings
  • Volunteer Service: 45 hours during each of the pre-OT years including the year of application
  • Leadership: 2 different leadership positions during the pre-OT years
